‘Behind the Headlines’: Police shooting ‘justified’, Love outpolls Owens, BYU grad challenges Trump, ozone study cites deaths (8/12/16)


Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill rules as justified the police shooting of Abdullahi “Abdi” Mohamed. Incumbent Republican Rep. Mia Love surpasses Democratic opponent Doug Owens in a recent poll. Brigham Young University graduate Evan McMullin jumps into the presidential race as a “Never Trump” option. And a report estimates that local ozone pollution leads to the deaths of 13 people in Salt Lake City per year.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Salt Lake Tribune reporters Jessica Miller, Emma Penrod and Robert Gehrke, as well as editorial writer George Pyle, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Each Friday morning, stream “Behind the Headlines” on or tune in to KCPW or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
